  1. It’s refreshing seeing people on board with these signings, as well as posting relevant stats and material as to why they are. Twitter is a gong show full of a lot of dense headed 12 year olds.
  2. Can confirm. Watched a lot of Habs games. Looked out of place at center, terrible defensively. Not his fault, but more Therrein/ Julien. Never had faith in him to learn the game. Ironic since they gave Drouin the entire year at it last year, and especially ironic when Bergevin himself says in an ideal world Drouin isn’t a center...
  3. I don’t know how to embed via my phone but 4x3.25, Beagle is 4x3. Bit long for my liking on Beagle, but Roussel I’m good with. He’ll be playing the hard minutes for years to come
  4. Can Benning nail the pick?

    Is that you Brian Burke?
  5. What ufa's should we go after?

    Not when you squat school busses
  6. I don’t think people realize that Galchenyuk didn’t play much center at all for the Habs, nor was he going to. Julien and Bergevin have both come out saying he’s a winger now (on the Habs.) Not saying I like the trade but Domi slides in nicely behind Patches on the second line. Slightly faster than Galchenyuk, but Galchenyuk had better hands and offensive instincts. Interesting to see if the Habs go for Statsny now.
  7. Can Benning nail the pick?

    Other Habs fans will hate it but it wouldn’t be terrible. He reminds me a lot of Sean Monahan tbh. Dont see Detroit passing up on Boqvist but stranger things have happened, I suppose. That being said, there’s almost no way Benning whiffs on this pick. Too much talent available.
  8. Can Benning nail the pick?

    I can see Montreal going off the board and going for Kotkaniemi. Bergevin has been hinting at not taking the most obvious choice at #3 pretty hard.

    He was talking about during summer. It should be incredibly easy for someone to get in shape if they're being paid and have summers off.

    The player who originally shot it gets credited for a shot attempt, while the player that tipped it gets credit for the shot

    Look at Pittsburgh's d-core for their past two cups. 2015-2016 who did they have besides Letang? Then this past year they had no Letang and Ron Hainsey playing around 20 some odd minutes a game.Not saying defense isn't important, as you would need an exceptional offense to overcome it still, but this is an example. On the flip side, I guess we have Nashville who is the polar opposite of Pittsburgh and made it to the cup finals. Either way you're going to need a few star players to win the cup. Crosby, Malkin, Letang/ Toews, Kane, Keith/ Carter, Doughty, Kopitar. Well, looking at it now I guess you're right hahaha. We have Boeser/ Pettersson/??? looks like we need to win those Dahlin sweepstakes which have some other teams name written all over it.

    Naw, you aren't the only one haha. He's very lazy... Inconsistent from game to game, not to mention shift to shift. Hoping a miracle happens this summer and he goes to train with Gary Roberts to get his ass in shape.

    No problem, I'm very bored in class. I find Wikipedia is good for breaking down the trades at the draft. Honestly, he could be on to something. You have to work your ass off to become an NHLer, and you're going to have to take some hits. Goldobin might be coasting out there and not giving it his all every shift. Could be a product of coasting when he was younger. Hopefully, he comes to this realization and can add muscle to withstand the rough stuff in the corners. He has the talent but has to work hard. I saw a popular quote by Durant that said "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard."

    This one is a little complicated because San Jose didn't win the cup, so we got their 4th which we traded to Chicago for Carolina's 5th and Chicago's 6th where we drafted Gunnarsson and Palmu. So basically it was Hansen for Goldobin, Palmu, and Gunnarsson. If I have it correct.
